Advance care directives are evolving – and there’s so much more to know. For example, how do they work in a pandemic?
But the main question is: Are the people who could benefit most from them, thinking about them?
First step is to take the first step!
This Canadian video is really good to help with that, no matter who you are or where you are.
But these days, the question prompts another one: “Who speaks for us if we are Covid-19 positive, whatever environment we are in?”
Would love to hear your answers.
In Australia, help and support with advance care directives is being provided by the End of Life Direction for Aged Care (ELDAC) initiative. For more on that, go to: https://www.eldac.com.au/
